Since children's patterns come in so many sizes I find myself retracing a size up every six months or so. Instead of buying tracing paper I just use left over tissue from Christmas...the kind you put in the top of gift bags. I had purchased it for 50 cents a package a month ago or so and one piece is usually big enough for one toddler outfit. It is also very easy to see through and is about the same weight as the pattern pieces.

I use it too. Also wrapping paper for patterns - it's curly but if you crumple it then iron it back out, it stays flat. Happy New Year
